Lake Birds

A rather quiet trip around the lakes today but I did get some species of interest. Out on Lake Davis, a small flock of Lesser Scaup rested out in the center of the water. Wintering duck numbers have been rather low this year.

A lone male Mute Swan drifted close to the shore.

Another lone male. This time a Ring-necked Duck.

A single Ring-billed Gull rested as well. Everything seems so sleepy this morning.

Even this male Wood Duck next to Lake Cherokee. Just kind of sleep walking around on the grass.

Perhaps they will be more active next time I visit.
